GARTER ST/RIDGE (worked in the round):

Cast on 98-98-98-154-154-154 sts on circular needle size 5.5 mm with Big Merino. Work 1 RIDGE - see description above. Work A.1 (= 14 repetitions of A.1 in width - see markings for your size). When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 266-294-322-350-406-434 sts on needle. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION Continue with A.2 until piece measures 17-18-20-21-23-25 cm. Now work as follows: Work 38-42-46-50-58-62 sts (= half back piece), slip the next 57-63-69-75-87-93 sts on stitch holder (= sleeve), cast on 7-7-7-7-9-9 new sts, work the next 76-84-92-100-116-124 sts (= front piece), slip the next 57-63-69-75-87-93 sts on stitch holder (= sleeve), cast on 7-7-7-7-9-9 new sts, work the last 38-42-46-50-58-62 sts (= half back piece) = 166-182-198-214-250-266 sts.

= 166-182-198-214-250-266 sts. NOW MEASURE THE PIECE FROM HERE. Continue with A.2, work the new sts in the sides K when working K and P when working P. When piece measures 3 cm, inc 1 st in each side of the 7-7-7-7-9-9 new sts in each side, repeat inc every 2 cm 5-6-7-8-9-10 more times = 190-210-230-250-290-310 sts. Continue with 10 repetitions of A.2. When A.2 has been worked 1 time vertically, work A.3 one time over all repetitions of A.2 = 210-230-250-270-310-330 sts.

Size S-M-L-XL: Work 3 repetitions of A.4 in height, then work A.5 1 time in height over all repetitions of A.4 = 230-250-270-290 sts. Continue with A.6 until piece measures 37-37-38-39 cm (54-56-58-60 cm in total). Loosely cast off.

Hej! Dom nya maskorna man lägger upp och som ökas efter 3 cm, kommer dom inte att vara vågmönstrade?

DROPS Design 10.09.2019 kl. 15:08:

Hej Sari, nej de nya maskor stickas inte i A.2 men i räta och aviga maskor enligt A.2. Lycka till :)

Heidi 16.08.2019 - 17:23:

Slå enten 98 eller 154 m på. Er det ikke et meget stort spring mellem størrelserne?

Maréka 08.07.2019 - 10:30:

Bonjour, je vous ai déja envoyé cette question hier mais cela n'a pas été enregistré.Je commence ce pull 168-34 et je voudrais savoir quand on commence le A1 taille S au 4ème rangs on doit augmenter une maille au début et à la fin du motif et ceci 14 fois, et je vous savoir si cette maille en plus est un jété, ou si c'est autre chose ensuite on doit faire 7 mailles endroits.Merci de votre patience . Bonne journée

DROPS Design 08.07.2019 kl. 10:44:

Bonjour Maréka, toutes les augmentations à faire figurent dans A.1: au 3ème rang de A.1 on tricote: 2 m ens à l'end, (1 jeté, 1 m end)x3, 1 jeté, 2 m ens à l'end = on va diminuer 2 m mais augmenter 4 m = on augmente ainsi 2 m dans chaque A.1. Bon tricot!

Kristin 07.04.2019 - 22:30:

På bolen står det «Fortsett med 10 rapporter av A2. Når A2 er strikket 1 gang i høyden, strikkes A3 en gang over alle rapporter av A2.» Betyr det at A3 skal strikkes kun en gang eller 10 ganger?

DROPS Design 08.04.2019 kl. 15:25:

Hei Kristin. Du strikker A.3 over alle maskene, men kun 1 gang i høyden. God fornøyelse

Stephanie Philipps 26.04.2018 - 10:25:

Sehr tolle Anleitung habe nur eine Frage beim rumpfteil unter dem Arm die masche die neu angeschlagenen werden soll ich die am Anfang im rapport stricken oder nur links oder rechts

DROPS Design 26.04.2018 kl. 11:52:

Liebe Frau Philipps, die neuen unter dem Arm angeschlagenen Maschen werden wie im A.2 gestrickt, dh rechts oder links wie alle anderen Maschen in A.2, wenn Sie die Löcherrunde in A.2 stricken, werden diese Maschen rechts gestrikt (= ohne Löcher). Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Alvy 25.10.2017 - 17:38:

Ok super merci là j'ai tout compris pour tricoter en rond ^^

Alvy 25.10.2017 - 12:46:

Vous voulez bien dire les rangs "impairs" sont sur l'endroit et se tricotent donc à l'endroit sauf contre ordre

DROPS Design 25.10.2017 kl. 14:42:

Bonjour Alvy, en fait, ce modèle se tricote en rond, donc tous les rangs se lisent sur l'endroit, en commençant en bas à droite (et de droite à gauche). Ainsi, les rangss 1 et 2 (S, M et L) se tricotent à l'endroit, et le rang 6 se tricote à l'envers. Bon tricot!

Alvy 25.10.2017 - 10:33:

Bonjour, pour être sûre, le motif A1 : le 1er rang est à l'endroit, le 2e rang à l'envers et ensuite tous les rangs pairs sont bien à l'envers sauf si mentionné autrement ? Merci par avance pour votre réponse

DROPS Design 25.10.2017 kl. 12:23:

Bonjour Alvy, les diagrammes comportent effectivement tous les rangs du point fantaisie, tous les rangs pairs se tricotent sur l'endroit (lisez-les de droite à gauche) et tous les rangs pairs sur l'envers (à lire de gauche à droite). Bon tricot!

Alison Miller-Astor 10.09.2017 - 21:51:

And the body instructions have me confused... again. It says to continue with 10 repetitions of A.2. When A.2 has been worked 1 time vertically, work A.3 one time over all repetitions of A.2. What does that mean? Do I work A.3 after EVERY repetition of A.2? Or once after the 1st repetition and once after the last?

DROPS Design 11.09.2017 kl. 09:04:

Dear Mrs Miller-Astor, on body, work A.2 a total of 10 times in width (over the 190-210-230-250-290-310 sts) then work A.3 one time in height - then continue working A.4 as explained under each size. Happy knitting!

Alison Miller-Astor 18.08.2017 - 00:48:

Hi, so I'm at the end of the instructions for the TOP, where I've slipped 75 stitches on to a stitch holder and am being told to cast on 7 new stitches. I'm unclear how to do that... Do you have specific instructions?

DROPS Design 18.08.2017 kl. 07:44:

Hi Alison, As you are working top down, you need to close the armhole after you have placed the sleeve stitches on a thread. So the 7 new stitches will be under the sleeve and are cast onto the stitches still on the needle before you carry on working the stitches on the other side of the sleeve stitches. I hope this helps. Happy knitting!
